We have a very special treat for you today - a guest post (and FREE PATTERN!) from new designer, Anna Holzberger. These reversible, stylish and toasty warm wristwarmers take only an hour or two to work up, require less than one 100g ball of yarn, and look great!
TOASTY WRIST WARMERS
by Anna Holzberger
Favourite and Queue on Ravelry here:
60-70g DK/8ply yarn (I used James C Brett Woodlander)
This pattern uses American terminology.
ch - chain
slst - slip stitch
hdc - half double crochet
bpdc - back post double crochet
fpdc - front post double crochet
Tension and Sizing:
The pattern below fits a large adult male (length 19cm/7.5", width 12cm/4.5")
My tension worked out to be approx 1hdc = 0.5cm/0.25"
To change the width/circumference, increase or reduce the number of chain stitches at the start - make sure you still have an odd number though!
To change the length, increase or reduce the number of repeat rows in each section (see Notes below for sections).
1. These wristwarmers are worked from the finger end to the wrist end.
2. The first 5 rows are worked in the round (Section 1), the next 11 rows are worked in rows back and forth (Section 2) and the final 9 rows are worked in the round again Section 3).
Chain 37 (not tight); join to beginning chain to form circle.
Row 1 – Ch1, 1HDC into same stitch, 1HDC in the next 36 HDCs, sl st to initial HDC (37 HDC)
Rows 2 to 5 – Repeat Row 1 (Total of 5 rows of HDC)
Row 6 – Ch1, 1HDC into the same stitch, HDC in next 36 stitches, turn (37 HDC)
Rows 7 to 15 – Repeat Row 6
Row 16 – Ch1, 1HDC into same stitch, 1HDC in the next 36 chains, sl st to 1st HDC/Ch1
At this stage you can turn the work inside out or stay on same side.
Join by slip stitch to first HDC of Row 16 to begin working in the round again.
Row 17 – Ch2, FPDC in HDC below the Ch2, BPDC in next HDC, repeat FPDC & BPDC (17 times), slip stitch into initial FPDC to close round. (you should have 36 post stitches in total)
Rows 18 to 25 – Repeat Row 17 - do a FPDC in each FPDC and BPDC in every BPDC.
Sew in tail ends….. should only have two of these!!!
Repeat for second wrist warmer.
